Private Dinners

Private Group Dinners

We host corporate, wedding reception and rehearsal dinners.

The ambiance of an 18th-century inn awaits your group at Michie Tavern ca. 1784 located in Charlottesville, Virginia.
When holding a private evening event, the historic restaurant is reserved for your group exclusively.  Whether your event is a rehearsal dinner, company banquet or private party, arrangements can be customized for you. Destination wedding parties, conference groups, travel and school groups find the privacy of Michie Tavern to be a perfect venue for an evening function.

Our mission is to provide a taste of the 18th-century with southern hospitality.  All groups merit special attention; experienced Tavern staff will be responsive to every need.  Socials before dinner may include a tour or open house in the oldest sections of Michie Tavern followed by a bountiful, southern buffet in our candlelit dining rooms.
